A video on the Sony WM1Z and recommended Accessories for those who are thinking of buying this player.
Not to be critical but I’m pretty sure that video would be at the end of the list of videos for someone thinking of buying the player. Though it would be best to be viewed by someone who just purchased one.
A video for someone thinking of buying the 1Z/1A would need to show the relevance today of such a purchase being the players came out in 2016. Many new products have been introduced since then, and a video could show how the Sony Walkmans still hold up. Secondly the video could show the new additions of firmware 3.01 being it now offered DAC functionality as well as AptxHD and Bluetooth sending and receiving. The video would need to show operations of the interface as well as the list of sound modification options such as vinyl character filter. It would need to explain DSD support, DSEE upscale and what S-Master HX digital amplification was about.
As many new players in the field do not offer 4.4mm Pentaconn 5 pole plugs a video could show the benefit and negative opinions on that.
And finally a description of sound and comparisons of the choices concerning the 1A, 1Z and choice of ZX300. At best a direct comparison of sound characteristics comparing the Sony sound to other DAPs in the price range.
So with that in mind the video is useless for a perspective buyer. IMO
